Zox began his 'Rotation' series in 1963 to use a standardised geometrical compositional schema as the basis for a series of paintings each different in colour. Some of the compositions, suggesting overlapping, bending etc., were evolved with the aid of plywood and perspex reliefs. By the mid-60s, his large geometric paintings were appearing at prestigious galleries.
